Hi my name is Jackie and I am married to Douglas and have we have 3 children. We are located in Central Scotland near Loch Lomond in Argyll & Bute, 18 miles west of Glasgow and 40 miles from Edinburgh.
My family and I are animal mad! We currently live with our dogs, cat, 2 horses and our small flock of Ryeland Sheep.
As Labradoodle Breeders we wanted to offer our new adoptive homes a Labradoodle puppy that we knew would live up to the standards the public is reading and hearing about. The Australian labradoodle has received a lot of media attention and rightfully so. Australian labradoodles are a fairly new breed, the dogs being used as Dams and Sires are health tested for genetic soundness. The health and temperament of the dogs is at the forefront with Australian Labradoodle breeders.
I’m sure as many of you have, I spent hours looking at photos of beautiful shaggy coated labradoodles and I wanted to be able to breed puppies that would be similar in type and temperament. William was the first Australian labradoodle we imported and the first ever Australian Labradoodle in Scotland and one of the first in the UK. He was soon followed by the very handsome Angus. William and Angus gave us a great foundation for our breeding programs. We now have dogs from all over the world ensuring genetic diversity in our breeding programme.
We are Licenced breeders with Argyll and Bute Council and we have regular checks on our facilities. We are a Limited Company, pay tax and are VAT registered. We also are registered with The Animal and Plant Agency under the Balai Directive which is needed for sending puppies abroad.
As well as myself and Douglas, my daughter Beth currently runs the office after successfully finishing her Business and English degree at Stirling University. Beth has been brought up around our dogs her whole life and is familiar with all that we do.
We are also very lucky to work with a great team of vets and groomers locally.
We are always working to improve our facilities and currently have a state of the art groom room a play room and puppy birthing suites.
Why Choose Us?
We brought the first Australian Labradoodle to Scotland and since then have provided many puppies to loving families. Most importantly, we stick to a specific code of ethics! Many of our dogs have went on to become Assistance dogs, PAT dogs and therapy dogs working in Schools and Hospitals.
